    Hmm ... according to Life Explore (just Google it) the Adventurous personality style correlates with ESTP and ISTP.

    Ah well, I think that I will consider myself unclassifiable and call it a day.

    I don't know what merit there is to Oldham's personality styles.

    I believe they're based on "mild" forms of personality disorders -- e.g. his idiosyncratic style is a "healthy" version of schizotypal personality disorder.

    I score highest in solitary, vigilant, and idiosyncratic.

    I'm not sure how useful his system is. A friend of mine has a book by him and loves it, though.

    Well that's a cheerful thought.

    Is there any chance that all of these personality typing methodologies/disciplines are rubbish?

    Yep, lol.

    But personally, I don't see why an ENFP couldn't fit into Oldham's Adventurous style.

    Because Life Explore said so? I know, not the greatest argument. On the plus side I'm losing interest in the whole thing.

    This time, my highest scores were Self-Confident, Idiosyncratic, and Vigilant.

    I might take the test again...Self-Confident personality sounds like narcissistic personality disorder, and that doesn't really sound like me.

    I might take the test again later, I probably misread some of the questions.

    As far as accuracy is concerned, I don't think I'm very dramatic. I don't know how right the other stuff is.
